much has been made…

of Charles Darwin this week. and rightfully so, for tomorrow is his 200th birthday.

but today is important for a completely different reason: it’s Mary Quant’s 75th birthday.

for those who don’t know, Mary Quant (OBE FCSD) is one of the three designers who has best claim to creating the miniskirt (the other two being John Bates and André Courrèges). in a somewhat interesting twist, Ms. Quant claimed to have named the fabric-saving dress after the Mini (her favourite car), which also has an important anniversary this year.

so, maybe take a moment today to consider a different sort of evolution.

quote of the day:

“Fashions fade, style is eternal.” – Yves Saint Laurent
